Openfire is a Jabber/XMPP server software written in Java language. Openfire’s benefits are simple installation, database and LDAP support, extensibility (with plugin system), cute web management interface. Openfire is one of the most feature-rich server, but it’s problems are absense of virtual hosting support and great resource consumption.
One of the most known extensions for Openfire is called Kraken. Kraken is an IM gateway (transport) set like Spectrum, but working through Openfire’s plugin API instead of standard XEP-0114. It makes installation of Kraken very easy with Openfire, but impossible (or very complex) with other server implementations.


Openfire 3.7.0 (as well as Kraken) may be downloaded from our downloads page
